Martin Luther King Day of Service

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

By Alice Kenny

Martin Luther King Day, celebrated this year on January 21, is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.” It is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.
